St Barnabas Church, Joydens Wood



The Churches in the Bexley Team are working together to ensure that during the current coronavirus outbreak we take all possible measures to protect our church congregations and the communities we serve.

We will follow the guidance issued by The Church of England


We will do all we can, during the coming weeks, within the limits of our resources to support people encountering difficulties, and are available to talk with you if you are anxious.


The Church continues to be alive and active, and our Sunday 10:45 am services resumed on Sunday 5th July with our first communion service on 26th July, for the latest information see our BT News page. We must continue to follow government advice on distancing and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.





The following are resources which you may like to use as aids to your own personal prayer and worship. As the weeks progress we will make additions to the list via a weekly newssheet, and will endeavour to make these prayer resources available in paper form in the coming days.


If you have access to the internet this is a good site to visit.

Coronavirus / Covid-19

Great news!  Our church will be open this Sunday for Public Worship with communion, a Service of the Word at our usual time of 10.45am.  For more details see this week's Bexley Team News. As you will know from the news, from 8 August we are required to wear a face mask in all Places of Worship, unless there is a clear medical condition which gives you exception.  The person leading worship, and readers will be able to remove masks when speaking, so audibility shouldn’t be a problem.
